I am not pregnant right now. I want to get a tattoo on the lower part of my back. I have heard that during labor if you have a tattoo on the lower part of your back or on your stomach, and you take drugs to help the pain, the drugs ruin the tattoo. is that true?

I have a tattoo on the lower part of my back, and my stomach, and I'm pregnant, and they're are just fine. Just keep vitamin e on them.

Actually, I have heard that if you have a tattoo on the lower part of your back, in the "injection" site (for an epidural) that they will NOT administer you the epidural if you indeed want one. Apparently the ink can get into your blood stream and cause infection. This is just what I have been told.

You can get an epidural if you have a tattoo there, with no problem.

No That is not true. It may stretch mine did but it went back to normal.

I also heard that about epidurals and tattoos and I asked my doctor and she said it's not true at all.I have a tattoo on my lower back and I'm planning for an epidural

Got a epidural on the 28 of june when I gave birth to my daugther ......and it didnt work .the only thing it did ....i dont have any sensation anymore on my right hand .......2 of my fingers are numb.....since I gave birth .......as for the ink that might get into your blood stream ...its already IN your blood stream .......getting a tatoo always get ink in your blood stream ......and you havent died yet .havent you?

That is untrue I also have a tatoo on my lower right stomache , although it did stretch and it has two stretch marks in it and it doesn't look as good>

I have a tattoo on my stomach, when I was pregnant, it barely stretched out, but when right back down.

the only thing that ruins your tattoo is the stretching of your skin. the drugs don't do a thing to your tattoo. After you go back to pre pregnancy size, you're tattoo will look faded. that's all. I have one on my back and nothing has happened to it because I carried all in the front

I heard the same thing about tattoos. I heard from a nurse that the doctor WILL NOT issue the epidural at all if there is a tattoo present in the injection spot. However, as someone else said, the ink is already in your bloodstream so, tecnically I have no Idea!!! Sorry!!

I ALSO HEARD THAT THEY WONT GIVE YOU AN EPIDURAL IF YOU HAVE A TATTOO ON YOUR BACK, I AM PLANING ON GETING A TATTOO ON MY LOWER BACK AND I DO PLAN TO HAVE A CHILD WHEN I AM READY, SO I HOPE THAT ITS A LIE ABOUT THEM NOT GIVING EPIDURALS TO WOMEN WHO HAVE LOWER BACK TATOOS,BECAUSE IF IT IS TRUE....OH LORD PLEASE BE WITH ME, BECAUSE ITS GOING TO HURT!!!!!!

i got a tattoo and a stretch mark went right through it during my first pregnancy and so my tattoo is ruined and looks aweful but the one on my lower back is unscathed

I have one on my lower back and I just recently had the epidural. all that about tattoos and epidurals arent true. but stretch marks could ruin it and I would wait till after the pregnancy to get one. Also im not sure if it would do any harm to the fetus to get one while preggo

 

leanna - January 16

i don't think that it would ruin the tattoo becasue it is on your skin not some marker that comes off with water so no i do not think that when you are pregnant that it will ruin it when you take drugs!

If you are worried about the stretch marks you can always have your tattoo touched up. then it will be back to new! im planning on getting one on both my lower back and lower stomach, and to have a kid, if they get messed up i will just have them fixed :)
